It's in a decent neighborhood too. The Kaufmann Desert House by Richard Neutra is next door.
Thanks Jim and Tony!

Sol-Air canvas and iron lounge and side table by Pipsan Saarinen Swanson for Ficks Reed, 1950. Sol-Air was selected for the first “Good Design” exhibition in 1950.  The lounge was also used in Case Study House 1950 by Rafael Soriano. So was the Bill Lam lamp in the corner. I'm not sure anyone else cared, but I was excited to put that group together.  Ficks Reed promotional photo by Herbert Matter Source: Via an excellent post on Pipsan Saarinen at Cranbrook

Reform Gallery showed up with some major California work, as usual. That's a big Hassel Smith on the back wall.

Eames Office / 901

Image
901 Washington Boulevard (now Abbot Kinney)  The building was the Eames Office from 1943 to 1988. Prior to that it was the Bay Cities Garage. 
I was in the neighborhood with a California made Zenith LAX, so a homecoming was in order.
